We all know that creating a great program is important, but so is connecting with community partners and potential students to make them aware of the opportunity. And that’s just what Anne Lemke, Moraine Park Technical College (MPTC) TAACCCT 3 and 4 Grant Manager, has been doing.School pic

While sharing information about programs and services available at MPTC with a Forward Service Job Club, Anne met Andy Bond. Andy has since been accepted into the Spring 2016 Mobile Apps for iOS and Android Certificates cohort at MPTC.

“I’m very excited to hear I made it into the program.” Andy wrote. “Also I wanted to say thank you for coming to speak at our job club a few weeks ago. I would never have known about this opportunity otherwise. This program will make a huge difference in my life. I intend to make the most of it!”

This collaborative relationship is good for workforce partners and the larger community as well.

“I really love what Fond du Lac has going for it with MPTC’s presence here,” said Ross DeRosier, Forward Service Corporation-Account Representative. “Since starting my role in Fond du Lac last April, I’ve witnessed a strong, and truly collaborative, relationship between your college, the community at large and your students. Thanks for your passion and collaboration. MPTC has fantastic opportunities for folks who want to make the commitment to themselves to change their direction, and lives.”
